Avon Calling: Vote for a new bow tie–and win one for your cat!


Avon during better times, with bow tie.

So Stringer destroyed Avon’s Swoon Reads bow tie on Monday morning. Super sad, right? Not! For every storm cloud there is a silver lining. In this case, that silver lining is that YOU get to choose Avon’s next bow tie.

But this rain cloud has a DOUBLE silver lining. One lucky commenter will get a cat bow tie of their very own from our friends at Sweet Pickles Designs. What is Sweet Pickles Designs? Oh, just a “modern line of cat accessories created with a vision that all cats deserve to express their sense of style.” Is that not the best thing to exist ever? Obviously this is why I’ve been dressing Avon in their amazing bow ties for ages now.

Rate the options for Avon below! And leave a comment with the name of your favorite bow tie from the Sweet Pickles website. We’ll pick a winner at random to receive their favorite bow tie for the kitty in their life.
